The story: A piece of underground cable went bad.  The techs didn't pull new underground cable.  They decided it was better to do it

strand of RG6 (yes, the same stuff you use inside your home, not the outside-plant rated stuff) tied to trees with rope.
Why is that cable still in place?

That's a hint, not really a question. :)

That cable definitely needs to be removed in the interest of... uhh... "community safety". Yeah, that's it. You're worried about the puppies and children hurting themselves. ;)

(Double-mega-extra-bonus points if you convince your local city services to do it!)
